Age 20 - It has truly changed me for the better

young guy3 months ago i decided to do nofap & it truly has changed me for the better. Better clarity, thinking... social anxiety & anxiety in general has gone down tremendously.

Age 17 - Confidence up anxiety down

horizonFor the 5 months before starting NoFap, life was  a struggle.  I was fat, not really looking good, depressed, anxiety at its finest and confidence at its lowest.

Age 17 - Mood swings, depression and anxiety gone - worth it!

Guy with 'Yes!' T-shirtToday is my 90th day of no fap and I couldn't feel better! Before no fap I would go through constant mood swings and bouts of depression/anxiety. After about the half way mark began noticing that my life was becoming so much better and that I had little fear when talking to people!

Age 20 - I can honestly say that I was a COMPLETELY different person a year ago

young guyIt was a year ago that I first joined this site. Little did I know how much my life would change in one year.

Age 33 - ED: Sex improved tremendously. From being a maybe one time guy, to a 4 time guy.

couple in bedI'm in my early 30's and without bragging i had my fair share of women in my life. I feel like i needed to post this too since it might make this post more relevant to some of you.

It's lovemaking now - an awesome psychological experience

guy getting a hug in bedI've always been a very outgoing and social person, so when I was alone at home, i often got so bored that I masturbated to harcore porn just because I had nothing better to do.

Age 17 - No longer practice self-harm, Grades have skyrocketed, Better relationships

guitar playerI hope I can give some wisdom to people who just began as to how to make it as far as I did. This is my first attempt at NoFap by the way.

Age 32 - The term “Superpowers” makes me want to punch myself in the face, but I can see what people are talking about

guy with beardI’m not a frequent visitor or reader of NoFap-related stuff anymore, but here because I feel obligated to make a 90-day report to you folks because I learned a lot from this sub in the first week or two.

Age 25 - Not unicorn and rainbows, but the grass is definitely greener

green woods-Everyone starts these things off with their background and I’m no different, yet I feel it’s important to provide you with my life style to hone in on how noFap plays into the quotidian/mundane parts of my life.

Age 18 - Have I felt these super powers? Hell yeah.

Carpe ScrotumThis is my fucking life. Yesterday, I finally hit my longest streak of 50 days [after a year of trying].

Age 18 - I was viewing the occasional nsfw posts, wondering why I wasn't seeing progress with PIED

RethinkDuring these days (and my time on nofap) I have always thought that masturbation was the ultimate problem over everything else, but recently I have realised that it is pornography which was my real enemy.

My memory has sharpened, my concentration is full, the world has become colorful again

FallsI've seen a lot of posts about motivation, where to find it, what can it be. Your motivation should be your own well-being. The changes in my brain are absolutely nuts! My memory has sharpened, my concentration is full, the world has become colorful again.

Alexander Rhodes - Mood has improved very significantly

Mood improvement kitI vividly remember the first time I was inadvertently exposed to the world of Internet pornography. I was a kid innocently searching the Internet when a pop-up advertisement appeared featuring hardcore rape simulation porn. [Listen to Alexander describe his process in this podcast (middle segment).]

Why Shouldn’t Johnny Watch Porn If He Likes?

Sexual brain training matters—especially during adolescence

Monkey faceIt's normal for kids to want to learn all about sex, especially during puberty and adolescence when reproduction becomes the brain's top priority. For this we can thank the specifics of teen-brain development.

Think of an adolescent jungle primate watching another band with such fascination that he (or she, in some species) leaves his companions, and endures the slings and arrows of being without allies at the bottom of another troop's pecking order—all for a chance to get it on with exotic hotties in the future. The things our genes do to guarantee genetic diversity!

Now, fast-forward to a young guy discovering the mind-boggling novelty of Internet erotica:
